Bilateral ties b/w Pakistan and Saudi Arabia warming up: Fawad

Minister of Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain says the bilateral ties between Pakistan and Saudi Arabia are further warming up.

Talking to PTV, he said Saudi Arabia will set up the Asia's second largest refinery in Gwadar at a cost of 8 billion dollars. He said it will be the largest Saudi investment in more than a decade in Pakistan.

He said relations between two countries span over many decades and Pakistan enjoys exemplary ties with Saudi royal family.  The Minister said leadership of Pakistan and Saudi Arabia sees eye to eye on many regional and global issues.

Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said Pakistan has emerged as a key player in the Middle East.  He said Pakistan has to play a role in resolving the issues between brother Muslim countries.

Replying to a question, the Information Minister said Pakistan strongly condemns terrorism in all its forms and manifestations. He said India should do soul searching instead of blaming others for its issues. He said Pakistan has always talked of peace and will continue to do so.
